An Ordinary Man by Paul Rusesabagina *** (of 4)

A painfully clear explanation of the genocide that overtook Rwanda as seen through the eyes of a man who survived and simultaneously saved the lives of another 1,200 people.  Not as gruesome as you might think it would be, nor as overtly political in its approach.  The lasting message is that despite WWII’s horrors, people the world over are still susceptible to messages of hatred and dehumanization of the other.  Fortunately, there are also still righteous individuals like the author.
